Weekend will start off warmer than average

Embrace the weekend's hot start. The finale won't be as pleasant.

Friday temperatures could rise to the mid to upper 80s east of the bay, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez. Coastal areas will still be warm, just a few notches cooler thanks to the sea breeze.

Warmer-than-usual weather should pervade the Tampa Bay area, she said. Tampa's high is forecast at 84 degrees, up from the day's average of 82.

Drivers will deal with patchy fog in Clearwater, Brooksville and Plant City until around 9 a.m., she said. Visibility was at least a mile.

The afternoon should have partly cloudy skies, and Friday night should cool to the mid to upper 60s.

Southeast winds should make for a warmer, breezier and more humid Saturday, she said.

Sunday will usher in a cold front and rain chances.

Temperatures will stay about the same. Winds will become southwest, moving 10 to 20 miles per hour, she said.

There's a 40 percent chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms rolling in Sunday afternoon. The wet weather should last until Monday morning.

Clear skies are behind the cold front, making for a dry Tuesday, Marquez said.
